In brief: Probably, slowly

Depending upon how restrictive is your diet, and how much fat you have lost, you can certainly expect some gain when resuming a more balanced diet.
How soon you gain lost fat, would depend on different factors like your absorption or other GI health issues.

In brief: No

Insulin is a growth hormone for fat cells.
if you eat a diet that requires little insulin (low carb) you don't grow fat. It is the sugar that makes you fat not the fat you eat.
